Hey..im a Vonage subscriber... i am trying to connect my linksys rt31p2 via netgear m814v2 to my computer..

I tried using linksys alone but i realized i was losing half of my bandwidth.. someone told me this iwas because the rt31p2 sucked as a router.

SO heres my current connection

Cable Modem - Linksys - Netgear 814
| |
Phone Laptop

However, the phone port on the linksys isnt lit for some reason..... and my phone doesnt work..

Any help in this matter is appreciated..

thanks

well, need some more info. and that's a poor explanation for losing half your bandwidth. first of all, how much bandwith do you have? and which side are you losing it on? (upload or download). is it just while you're on a call or all the time? from the extrememly limited info I see here it could be QoS kicking in, but maybe not.

and if you're not interested in solving that problem, one reason your current config may not be working is because the netgear is blocking the ports Vonage needs.

whoops, I think I misunderstood your current config. I assumed since you thought the linksys was stealing half your bandwith that you moved it behind the netgear...but you're saying the linksys is stealing half your bandwidth, but it's still connected to the cable modem and the netgear is connected to the linksys? and this solved your banwidth problem? I'm kind of confused because I can't think of any logical explanation that you would be losing half your bandwidth then by plugging in an extra router into the linksys which is stealing said bandwidth and all of a sudden your bandwidth is back. Does anyone understand what I just wrote? to make a long story short, your question doesn't make sense to me. so my other questions (besides the one in the first post) are:
spell out your current config for me just so I know I understand how you have everything hooked up. next, are you still have the bandwidth problem? if not, did plugging the netgear in the router and then your computer(s) into the netgear solve it? Thanks.

ok heres the thing... i have Comcast cable ( 4 mbps /384 kb ) .. i previously just used the linksys Phone adapter that Vonage sent me....I connected my internet and phone line to it and noticed that even when i didnt make calls the max download speed i was getting was 200 kb/sec as opposed to 400kb/sec i used to get when i used to connect to my cable modem directly.... I figited with the QOs settings on linksys but to no avail.. i finally left it at only VOICE qos being enabled to 256 kb/sec!

I then decided to use my netgear and now have 2 routers whose connectoins are mentioned in my first post... With such a setup, i noticed that im getting download speeds of 400 kb/sec...However, my phone is not working now... the phone light on the linksys modem is not lit either...

So i need help in the following:

Why isnt my phone light lit on the linksys modem even though the phone line is connected properly?

I apologize if my post was confusing...

I'm on vacation today and tomorrow, so I'm on a cell phone. My best response right now is to try the port forwarding.

It seems to me that when you plug the Linksys in front of everything, it is apparently doing some bandwidth limiting on non-Voip traffic in order to ensure QOS of Voip. I am not familiar enough with that brand of telephony adapter to know for sure, but I am familiar with others that do this. Some are configurable some not. And then when you plug it behind the Netgeat the registration messages it sends are not getting through (more specifically, the response is not getting back to the Linksys). I think if you want to go with that config you need to turn port forwarding on in the Netgear. Or have you already tried that (UDP ports 5060-5061, and 10000-20000)?

Hello everybody,

I have the same connection as Wazzup. The only difference is that my linksys router is a RT31P2-NA instead of a RT41P2-NA.

Here is a thing that you have to consider seriously when plugging two router together :

- Do not activate the DHCP server on both routers, unless you give then 2 totally different subnets, or the same subnet but with 2 different IP ranges.

So here is what I did :

- The main router (router 1: Netgear) has its DHCP server activated.
- The second one (router 2: Linksys) get its IP automatically from the Netgear. So, router2 acts like a DHCP client.

I did not touch anything else. Except may be the DNS servers in router2 (Linksys) just to make sure that it will be OK.

I had changed the RIP Direction parameters in the Netgear because at one moment, it was not working, so I thought that router1 was not exchanging information with router2. But after a will I have realized that I didn't have to. So I have reversed the changes made for the RIP Direction. I just had to reboot both routers in sequence, or to just give them a while. But I could wait.

Try that, and let us know.

Live long & Prosper
